Farmington Officer Gets Shot During Intense Shootout With 18-year-old Mass Shooter

Farmington, New Mexico — On Monday, May 15, 2023, at about 11:00 a.m. 18-year-old Beau Wilson stepped out of his home and opened fire on neighboring houses and passing cars, police said. He was supposed to graduate from Farmington High School the next day. The sound of the 18-year-old gunman’s rapid-fire shots was captured on a Farmington resident’s Ring camera before Wilson can clearly be heard calling for punishment. At least 150 shots from an AR-15 rifle were fired at the scene, according to police. The front door video showed 79-year-old Shirley Voita’s vehicle coming down a roadway with the driver’s door opened. Vehicles could be seen reversing away from the shooting scene. Voita was killed in the shooting, along with two other victims identified as Gwendolyn Dean Schofield, 97, her 73-year-old daughter, Melody Ivie. Audio from the neighbor’s camera heard Wilson yell, “Kill Me.”

Police body camera footage shows Sgt. Rachel Discenza and other officers rushing toward the Farmington High School senior, who had ripped off his modified protective vest with steel plates for the final confrontation. “Farmington police! Let’s see your hands!“ a male officer shouts at Wilson. An explosion of fire can be heard moments before Discenza is shot in the pelvic region. She fell to her knees after being shot, but still attempted to stand and continue toward the shooter before falling again. Officers on scene rendered initial aid. Discenza is recovering at home after being wounded. Police rushed to handcuff Wilson, but he was dead at the scene. A note was later found in the pocket of his discarded vest that said, “If your (sic) reading this I’m the end of the chapter.” It is not yet clear how many gunshot wounds Wilson had sustained. The six people wounded include Discenza and New Mexico State Police officer Andreas Stamatiadis, who was shot while driving to the scene. Both officers have been released from the hospital, along with the four other wounded victims. In total, Wilson fired at 11 vehicles and seven houses, though none of the people shot was in a residence.

  1. It drives me nuts how people love to bash female police officer's [while never commenting on male officer's when their actions are similar], but never comment when their actions are brave or exceptional.

    This officer didn't whine, cry, or whimper after being hit in the pelvic region by a 5.56mm round. In fact, she tried to stay in the fight until it appeared she could no longer walk or stand.

    Glad she is alright and recovering.

  2. Running toward a pos firing an AR-15 on an open road with no cover is what makes a Hero!! Protect and Serve at it's finest. "I'm coming Rachel!" I hope Sgt Rachel and the State Trooper have a speedy recovery. Condolences to the families of the victims.

  3. Incredible bravery by these officers to go head to head with this mass shooter with practically zero cover and take out the 18 year old societal trash with a mission to kill. Way too many of these incidents happening across our country today, it has become normal, and our so-called politicians and law makers have this blood on their hands for failing to take action. Here we are, bearing witness to the results of your lack of leadership. I hope you are proud of yourselves. We need to vote these useless bureaucrats out and elect people who can and will take action to protect life and liberty. Our hearts go out to all the brave and honorable men and women who wear the badge and protect our communities from people like this. We are forever in your debt. God Bless!

  4. These people are just disgusting less than valueless scam. Sadly it sounds like he didn’t get to suffer intense pain, mental anguish, and. regret, begging for to live. Great thanks and honor to all officers that willingly, without hesitation, step into that gap between good and evil. People, law-enforcement rarely are there immediately on scene when things go wrong. People, If you are a good, sane, moral, prudent person. Arm yourselves, no you’re states laws, get training, and carry your firearm. You may be the one to save a stranger, multiple strangers, Family members, even yourself.

  5. thats so fucking unfortunate how she was in the back and somehow got shot, in the pelvic region of all places. hope officer Discenza, Stamatiadis, and all civilians recover 100%

  6. Did you know that if you are still in high school your parents are still legal guardians even if you are 18? Let's get some charges on these parents. Quit giving kids guns ffs.

  7. Curse to your name Beau Wilson.
    Thousand Poxes upon the Wilson family for spawning this utter filth.
    Beware reader, the next shooter is out there and surfing 4chan right now.
